Members of the three churches will be joined by congregants from Presbyterian churches from Nitro to Belle for a joint worship service and music in a program that starts at 11 a.m. in the Charleston Coliseum Theater.

A joint choir comprising choir members from various Kanawha Valley Presbyterian churches and a performance by bagpipers and drummers from the Beni Kedem Highlanders will provide music for the celebration. Dr. Ed Thompson, general presbyter of the West Virginia Presbytery, will deliver Sunday’s sermon. The public is invited.
